Mutual Aid Fund
If you would like to donate to our Mutual Aid Fund, you will be supporting wildfire and COVID relief work as well as projects benefiting unhoused people. Prior to the establishment of this fund, Silicon Valley DSA has bought and distributed approximately 5,000 KN95 respirator masks for use by people affected by unhealthy air quality due to the various Lightning Complex Fires throughout the SF Bay Area, particularly SCU and CZU.
We have provided bulk mask deliveries to a number of partner organizations for distribution in their communities, and we have partnered closely with South Bay Mutual Aid and the San Jose Peace and Justice Center to provide masks directly to the public in Downtown San Jose.
Please review this document detailing the specifics of the fundraiser including the uses this money will be put to.

Fundraising for the Temporary Bail Fund is on hold as of July 15 per a request from San Mateo County Jail Support. Thank you for your generous support.

Silicon Valley DSA is working with the San Francisco National Lawyers Guild to provide support for people in Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area who are arrested in the process of demonstrations, protests, and due to newly-imposed curfews.
Money in the Fund may be used to pay bail, fines, or legal fees; to provide jail support; and to pay for closely related expenses.
The fund shall sunset on June 30 unless extended by a Chapter vote. (Note: the current extension goes until July 31.) Any money left over after the Fund sunsets will be directed to a bail fund project chosen by the Officers or the Chapter, such as the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
If you want to get in touch with the San Francisco National Lawyers Guild for legal support, please call 1-415-909-4NLG (4654).
